Diversity and Inclusion in Biology

The Department of Biology is dedicated to moving science forward to become a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable discipline, for students, staff, and faculty, tenured and non-tenured. We acknowledge that educational institutions have historically been sites where marginalized people have faced bias and inequities resulting in untold harm. In an ideal world, all aspects of science would be inclusive, but science historically represented a privileged subset of voices. The Department of Biology pledges to respect each other and welcomes dialogues that value diverse scientific perspectives. In our teaching, research, and service to the students, University, and community at large, we are dedicated to making institutional changes to ensure science is more accessible, safe, and welcoming to all.
